    Apple announced its new iPad lineup on Thursday, and began doing preorders on the devices on Friday along with cellular company AT&T. Following the trend, Sprint has announced today that they would be offering the cellular version of the iPad Mini 3 and iPad Air this week as well. The high-speed Spark LTE network will also be supported on the iPad Air 2, which has 20 LTE bands and up to 150Mbps over LTE in speed on the new device. According to Sprint:

    Sprint Spark delivers average wireless speeds of 6-15Mbps and peak wireless speeds of 50-60Mbps today on capable devices, with increasing speed potential over time. Sprint is on track to reach 100 million Americans by year-end with Sprint Spark.
    Consumers will be able to purchase the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 online and in-stores this week. It should be noted however tht the iPad Mini 3 will not be supporting Sprintís Spark network. A promotion is going on with Sprint right now where customers will be able to get the new iPads for $10 a month/ per tablet on their Family Share plan. For those on a 20GB Family Share plan or higher will be waived of the fee through 2015.

    If you would like to purchase the devices directly through Apple, you can do so now on their official website- they have devices for Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile. If ordered online, the new devices are said to ship sometime this week. Will you be getting one of the new iPads Apple just launched or have you already? Let us know in the comments below.
